A list of the books in William Congreve's library, from a list kept by William Congreve, published by the New York Public Library in 1955.

William Congreve (1670-1729) was a leading Restoration playwright, and his library is an example of what a top-flight literary library of his time looked like. John C. Hodges has helpfully printed all volumes in full modern bibliographic format below the original.
